Thanksgiving in Kissimmee/Orlando

Does anyone have a recommendation on where to have Thanksgiving dinner in the Kissimmee/Orlando area? We are 4 adults and 3 kids under 10. Thank you in advance.

    What is your price range? Are you looking for traditional fare or just a nice dinner spot?

      My first thought was Gaylord Palms hotel. Beautiful and festive this time of year and great restaurants-but pricey. Their Sunday Brunch is TO DIE FOR and worth every penny. I would bet for the holiday they will be doing a special dinner to celebrate.

        You might check the Renaissance Resort by SeaWorld. They have one of the best (and largest) Sunday brunches so you might see what they're doing for Thanksgiving.

          if I am not mistaken the large Sunday brunch at Renaissance has been discontinued when they remodeled last year.

          I know it's not very foodie-worthy, but I once had a great Thanksgiving Day meal at Barnhill's. It's a buffet in the style of Golden Corral, etc, but they had delicious turkeys being carved to order with plenty of tasty sides, all for a very reasonable price.

          Otherwise, the Gaylord Palms is always good...

            I'll be keeping a running list on the Flog. So far, I've got Red Wing Restaurant in Groveland, Doc's in Orlando, and Sleuth's Mystery Dinner Show in Orlando. Closer to Kissimmee, Caribe Royale will offer a brunch.
